Today I have Malia Mallory on the blog and she is telling us how she got started with erotic romance. Sit back and enjoy.
To be honest, I've been writing erotica for years, just not publishing it. I've always liked to write and at certain times penned a story for someone special in my life. In those instances, it was pretty much just shared between the two of us. In particular, if someone was travelling or we were doing a long distance thing for some reason, it was a way to be sexual when not physically together.
I've played around with doing more with my writing but never that seriously. I'd look at submission guidelines a couple times a year and continued to jot down my ideas.
Finally last year, I was inspired. I entered an erotic writing contest. I became a finalist and was pleasantly surprised. Though I ultimately didn't win, it did show me I could put out a product that was appealing and readable. I became more serious about investigating publishing.
Then I was struck by the indie writing bug. I didn't have to rely on a publishing company. I didn't have to send something in and wait months for an answer. Don't get me wrong I have nothing against traditional publishing. It's more when I make up my mind to do something, I tend to be in a hurry. Now the deadlines that I set are my own. I'm writing with a purpose. It does feel different though. It is definitely work. I'll keep you posted on my progress!

Excerpt from The ABCs of Erotica - R is for Revenge
Michael opened the end table drawer, revealing a variety of items including a scarf, a mask and a ping pong paddle.
Victoria moved to look more closely. “Oh my, what do we have here?” She reached inside and pulled out an exceptionally long scarf.
Michael took it from her. “I think I know something we can do with this.”
She took a deep breath. “Yes.” Her simple response was not only agreement, it was acquiescence.
“Take off your blouse.” Michael’s voice was firm.
“Michael….” Victoria hesitated.
Michael tossed the scarf back into the drawer. “It’s up to you Victoria.”
She took a deep breath and then unbuttoned her blouse. She pulled it out of the waistband of her skirt and tossed it on the couch.
Michael reached out his index finger and traced the edge of the scalloped lace bra then retrieved the scarf. He tossed one end up over an exposed ceiling beam and pulled the ends even.
He gave Victoria a questioning look. “Well?”
Her face was flushed, and her eyes bright. She simply nodded.
“Put your hands together over your head.”
Victoria stepped underneath the hanging ends of the scarf. She crossed her wrists and lifted her arms over her head. Michael wrapped the silken scarf around her wrists and tied them in place. He returned to the drawer and fished out a black eye mask and then returned and tugged it in place over her eyes.
“How do you feel?”
